Today's Tom Sawyer

So the guy who had his colostomy bag burst by TSA is named... Tom Sawyer? That's just awesome.

I don't love the idea of these invasive scans and patdowns. Airport security as is is a huge waste of time and I largely agree with the Jeffrey Goldberg "security theater" position. They even searched my son when we flew earlier this year, I guess acting on Louie Gohmert's "terror babies" theory.

But I think it's hilarious that during the Bush years anyone who questioned anything homeland security did was labeled an America-hater, but under Obama suddenly it's the right that fears the government jackboot. And calling Janet Napolitano "Big Sis" is just vile. You know Drudge would rather refer to her as "Big Fat Lesbian" but resists out of half-hearted decency.
